Electrify and connect your fleet with Fleet Europe

What does it take to electrify your vehicle fleet? And how can you benefit from connectivity? From 15 September until 16 October,  your media Fleet Europe focuses on everything electric and connected.

The push for electrification is being felt today. Governments across Europe are introducing incentives to go electric, awareness about climate change and health risks is growing and more and more companies have CO2 objectives to meet. On top of that, employees also have different expectations than in the past, and experiences of COVID-19 will only accelerate that.

The 2020 Global Fleet Survey has shown that:

  • 83% of all European fleet managers expect an increase in the number of EVs in their fleet
  • Global fleet managers expect their fleets to be 32% electric by 2025
  • More than 80% of corporate fleets will have adopted connected services and telematics

Indeed, connected services are key to the electrification process:

  • Subscriptions of connected services for consumer and commercial EVs – such as charging-station locators, eco-routing and EV telematics – will grow with 270% from 2020 to 2024.
  • 27M consumers and 1M commercial plug-in electric vehicles will be sold by 2030.
  • Today, people often worry charging infrastructure lacks smart communication systems with vehicles. There is a high need for connected services to display information such as the location of compatible charging stations and real-time availability to drivers.
